This week marks the 80th birthday of the Civic Centre - and residents are being asked to share their memories of the Grade II listed building.

The Civic Centre, which recently underwent a multi-million pound transformation into university CU London, is to celebrate its birthday in a joint event with the official university opening on October 13.

Residents are asked to share photographs and newspaper cuttings of the building - and people who share their 80th birthday with the building are being asked to get in touch.

Andy Ginn, associate pro-vice-chancellor of CU London, said: “The Civic Centre is an iconic east London landmark which is in the heart of the Dagenham community, so it is only right we celebrate its past while also looking to its future.”

To be involved in the Civic Centre birthday celebrations, email cul@coventry.ac.uk or call 0203 873 0700.
